The City of Ekurhuleni wishes to inform its ratepayers of the closure of Council offices between Christmas and New Year.
All administrative offices, libraries, selected rates halls and pay-points will be closed from 13:00 on Friday 22 December and will re-open on Tuesday, 02 January.
However, emergency and essential services such as refuse collection, electricity and water services will not be affected by the recess.
